We did 2 days horseback riding, Our tour started from Kochkor and ended in Kochkor. Its the best option if you have 2 days. We slept in yurt with local shepherds family. At night bit colder, but in yurt enough blankets. Yurt camp is not near the lake. They sais from july move to the lake. Everything was ok . We liked horseback riding tours

Kol-Ukok lake can be seen from late May till early September. If you want to overnight at yurt camps near the shore of the lake then you have to come in July-August when some local people settle down this time. The weather is quite cold to settle down in May, June or even late August. The route: 2- hours from Bishkek to Kochkor, 5-10 min to Kara-Suu or Isakeev villages where riding or hiking to Kol-Ukok lake can be started. It takes 5-5.5 h to reach the lake on horseback (total distance), 6h on foot. If you come in May-June then it's 3.5-4h to get to yurt camp (riding) and 4-4.5h on foot. The path for riding is quite good since there is one way to go up and down to the village. I had a family with children, one of them was only 11 years old. They had a lot of fun during riding. If you want to experience of nomadic life and without any super conditions (sleeping on mattresses, no electricity, local food,no signal for calling and etc.) then you will like this place!

In October or June you can have snow up there ! So nice ! and you will be ALONE ! If there is no-yurt camp like it was for me, before to start: just ask a tent - matress (you can rent-it in pegas adventure kochkor: Quechua good quality). Or take a guide : Baia , Tilek or an other guide from Pegas adventure , they are good to organize for your the transfer by car, rent a horse, prepare the staff for 2 days, and show you the additionel hike Kol Tor next to Kol-Ukok (across the snow!!! :).

We booked via on Facebook with Destination Kochkor company 2 days horse riding trip. The driver and English speaking guide pick up us from our guesthouse. Drive 30 min to starting point. From here we started horse riding to Kol Ukok lake. We ride 5 hours till yurt camp and ahd lunch after lunch more horse riding one and half hours. The lake located 3000m, was frozen only snow and ice, but beautiful view snow mountines. Spent 1 hour at the lake. In the evening back to Yurt camp. The dinner was delicouse, family where we stayed has a cows, we also helped them milking cows, its the great things I loved. Next day back to startiung p[oint 4 hours and by car 30 min to guesthouse. We all of us enjoyed during this trip. Highlyyyy recommmmend company!!!!!!

Kol Ukok lake is situated south part of Kochkor. We booked with facebook one day horse riding tour from Kochkor. The lake was frozen, but I loved horse riding. Before I didint have experience, the horses are calm easy to control them.

Just came back from 2-days tour in Kol-Ukok lake.
I called Joomart and he organized tour for us quickly. Horses are calm and very strong. Yurt is located half hour before lake and very silence there.

Kol Ukok is situated south side of Kochkor 30 -35 km From Kochkor. Early in june still snow and cold. But the lake is very beautiful. A lot of flowers on the way.

We did trekking with Pegas Adventure. We contacted on facebook with Tilek. Tilek he is manager of this tour with very good English. He arranged trekking to Kol Ukok accommodation in yurt and Horse trek to Song Kol lake.

Booked 2 days to Kol Ukok. Started in the morning to onother village 25 min by car. Than started treking. Here is easy to do trekking on the way only one way to go lake. First night we slept in yurt. I tried first time in my life Kyrgyzstan. Its traditional house inside warm and enough blancket. At night was colder but we took our sleeping bags. I prefer to take sleeping bags. Others everything was ok

Did a two day trek with an overnight stay in one of the yurts. From the small village where we started, it took around 4 hours trekking to reach the yurt and from there, another 2 hours to reach the beautiful lake Kol ukok. Can highly recommend spending at least one night in one of the yurts, it's a great way to experience the nomadic life style. Food was plentiful well tasting.
